Forza Horizon 2 arrives this fall for 360 and Xbox One

I enjoyed the first one, and the R-S crowd did some really fun multiplayer events together. I have no intentions of getting an Xbox One so if anything, I'll pick up the 360 version.

No funds for a One so I might grab the 360 version as well. Precisely I was wondering if they'd come back to this style in the future.

I'm eyeing the 360 version too. I really liked the first one, so I'm looking forward to this one. Saw that Sumo Digital is making the 360 version. 8-)

Interesting news, Playground Games has now confirmed that the two versions are "different games inspired by the same ideas". Could this mean Sumo Digital's version is a tad more arcade-y given their pedigree?

that certainly is interesting. I enjoyed the overall package of the first game. Loved the open world, the exploring, the story/atmosphere, the soundtrack(a lot) and the handling of the cars and ofcourse the online.

Don't know if I want that formula to change to drastically?

rumors says that the 360 version uses the Horizon 1 engine. Driveatars and changing weather won't be in the 360 version.

I can't find ANY information/pictures/video of the 360 version handled by Sumo Digital anywhere?

Looks so great on Xbox One. I saw some impressions the other day about the Xbox 360 version that Sumo Digital did. They were very impressed. It uses the same engine as Horizon 1 so it will look as stunning as the first one. It would have most of the features as the Xbone one and the carlist was quite big; more than 200 on both x360 and xbox one.

And of course, you will be able to explore this amazing world with a full 24-hour day/night cycle, and all running at native 720p and a locked 30 frames per second, just as in the original Forza Horizon.

I'm looking forward to it

Demo is out for Xbox One (not on Xbox 360, srry)..

Neogaf loves it. Says the intro is brilliant, the soundtrack awesome and the physics/gfx/atmosphere etc. is great.

My hype meters are rising.

The game came out a little while ago and unsurprisingly the reviews are all 9's and 10's. But pretty much all the reviews are of the Xbox One version, with nary a thought spared for the 360 version. So I was glad somebody did a comparison video:

Anybody have the game, either version yet?

Still looks really good on the 360. But that rain in the Xbox One version, wow :shock: Also, it's pretty interesting that they changed the tracks a little to avoid driving in open fields wihtout much foilage.

I still plan on getting it, but I'm in no rush, as I have a 100+ game backlog and I'm currently pretty busy at work, so I don't have time to play anyway. When I have time it might even have dropped in price 8-)
